We’ve got 19 stories this year from some very talented authors. I’m super excited to announce that we got a story from Peter S. Beagle, who’s going to be a Confluence this year as the Filk guest. We also have a story by Eugie Foster, who is one of my very favorite short fiction authors, and who just won the 2009 Nebula for Best Novelette.
Below is our full list of stories, complete with links to the author’s websites if I could find one. Go ahead, check them out. And remember, we’re having a release party at Confluence! There will be cookies! Be there or be square.
